Twice-raced maiden. 11/1, thirteenth of 16 in bumper at Galway (16f, soft) 139 days ago. Makes hurdles debut.

Verdict

ANTEY finished a narrow second in a very competitive maiden hurdle over C&D last month and that form must give him a big shout this afternoon. The main threat appears to be Crezic, who also filled the runner-up position when last seen on a racecourse. I Am Sailing was a further place behind in that race and he should be in the mix once again today.

Verdict

Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott have dominated at Cheltenham all week and look set to do so again here, with ANTEY, who went down by only a neck over C&D 4 weeks ago, just preferred to Naas runner-up Crezic. I Am Sailing looks best of the remainder.

Verdict

PAT'S OSCAR won very well at Fairyhouse last month and an 8lb rise in the ratings may not be enough to stop her from going well again this afternoon. Play The Game is another last-time-out winner to note and the mare he beat on that occasion went on to place at Cheltenham this week. Monotype's recent performances suggest that he may reward each-way support.

Verdict

STOWAWAY FOREVER has been knocking on the door of late, and a reproduction of his latest effort can see him go one better and open his account. Pat’s Oscar is respected for her in-form yard, with Templemore Dream another to consider.

Promising individual. Won 16-runner juvenile hurdle at Auteuil (17.4f, soft, 45/1) 145 days ago. First run for yard after leaving B. Lefevre. Should improve further.

Verdict

Cartwright looked one paced when things got serious at Naas last time out, although that was in a Grade 2 and this represents a drop in class for the former Sir Mark Prescott-trained five-year-old. Roaring Bull would surely have finished second in a Grade 3 last time but for a fall, while Rock De Baune is interesting on Irish debut for John Kiely. DRACONIEN emptied quickly on heavy ground over three furlongs than this last time behind an impressive winner, but has been given a break since and should appreciate the return to 2m for this in-form yard.

Verdict

Useful French recruit ROCK DE BAUNE should have more to offer for his new connections so he receives the vote. The dangers are headed by the Gordon Elliot-trained pair Roaring Bull and Cartwright.

Verdict

Small fields and heavy ground looks to suit GREAT FIELD well and it would be a surprise if he wasn't capable of landing this prize despite a 325-day absence for Willie Mullins. He has a forceful style of racing and could run this field into submission, although Alisier D'Irlande is likely to provide him with stern competition for a long way and could go well if lasting the pace. Doctor Phoenix got the better of the latter last time out but that race did look to fall apart somewhat, while Tell Us More and Inis Meain both arrive with a bit to find.

Verdict

It's taken a bit of time to get GREAT FIELD back to the track but he looked set for the very top when readily landing a Grade 1 novice at Punchedstown last spring and can make light of his absence, most likely at the main expense of Doctor Phoenix.

Fairly useful chaser. Latest win in hurdle at Kilbeggan in August. 10/1, respectable fifth of 11 in minor event chase at Leopardstown (17f, soft) 9 days ago.

Verdict

SATURNAS got off the mark over fences when outgunning De Plotting Shed last time and Willie Mullins' Grade One winning hurdler can make further progress here to outbattle Tombstone, who hasn't convinced over fences and was well held in Grade One company last time. The Irregular completes the line-up but probably needs the others to falter to have any chance here.

Verdict

SATURNAS still has a bit of room for improvement in his jumping but there was lots to like about his Fairyhouse defeat of De Plotting Shed and he can make the most of the weight he receives from Tombstone in a race likely to develop into a match between them.

One win from 34 NH runs. Twenty nine runs since last win in 2015. Below form sixth of 10 in novice chase at Leopardstown (21.3f, soft, 12/1) 9 days ago.

Verdict

FITZHENRY was a battling winner at Naas last time when getting the better of Last Encounter and Paul Nolan's six-year-old is backed to get the upper hand once again at the finish here having looked like their was plenty of improvement still to be seen. Augustin scored well at Clonmel last time, while Gigginstown hold a strong hand with Sutton Manor and Woods Well, and it would be foolish to rule out either.

Verdict

AUGUSTIN has made a good start to his chase career and there should be plenty more to come from him now switching to handicaps. Last Encounter, Fitzhenry and Glencairn View are all potential threats.
